When Charlie and Diane Parker were found shot dead in their Conway, South Carolina home, Diane’s daughter, Bambi Bennett, and her boyfriend Richard Gagnon, were charged with first-degree murder. After serving six months in jail, Bennett was cleared in the murder for lack of DNA evidence. Four months after her release, Bennett filed an incident report for trespassing against her brother, Charlie Parker, Jr. Bennett said Parker trespassed onto the property (which was tied up in probate court) where their parents were killed. She says he took a number of items from the home including a wooden trailer worth $300 and a disassembled stove.
Bennett has also pointed out that the hands of her brother tested positive for gun residue. “My parents were shot, and my brother had gunshot residue on both his palms and the back of his right hand,” Bennett said. “You don’t have to be a genius to figure that one out.” Charles Parker Jr., who said the gun residue probably came from giving CPR to his dad, was not charged with murder. Dateline NBC will air its investigative report on March 4 at 10pm.
